Fairly new to ULI, Rob Cochran suggests that “you get involved in ULI early in your career!” Rob is the Senior Managing Director at DTZ. Born in High Point and raised in Greensboro, he loves to vacation in the North Carolina mountains.
Rob got involved in ULI after an associate encouraged him to join. He became locally involved when ULI was preparing for the 2012 Spring Meeting in Charlotte and currently serves as the ULI Charlotte Program chair. Beginning in July 2015, Rob will step into the Assistant Chair position, and then will become ULI Charlotte Chair in July 2016. Rob believes “ULI offers great insight into all aspects of our industry and provides opportunities to build deep relationships with varied industry professionals.”
Recently, Rob read “I Am Pilgrim” by Terry Hayes (a must read), and enjoys hiking, traveling and spending time with his wife and two children. He is the first to tell you he can’t believe he waited this long in his career to be active in ULI, saying “I get it now.”
